      of Kansas City’s most important natural resource: The Missouri River. We treat about 90 million gallons of water every day and deliver it to more than , residents and 32 wholesale customers, including many nearby local water utilities. The Missouri River is known as . Water comprises 6 percent of the floodplain but only 2 percent of the study area as a whole. Of course the most prominent body of water in the floodplain is the Kansas River itself. Smaller areas of water are the tributaries and drainage ditches that empty into the river and the oxbow lakes and other abandoned river courses that hold water.

      meet established water quality standards, whereas sections (b) and (a) require information concerning the overall status of the state’s surface waters and the programs responsible for water quality monitoring and pollution abatement. The Kansas list of impaired waters (i.e., (d) list) is included as an appendix to this Size: 4MB.   Separate stormwater sewer system and reservoir releases to the Little Blue River may raise water quality and aquatic-life scores. The study, "Assessment of Macroinvertebrate Communities in Adjacent Urban Stream Basins, Kansas City, Missouri, Metropolitan Area, through ," has been released as USGS Scientific Investigations Report

Army Corps of Engineers, the. Rivers, streams and lakes are classified for different uses. The standards governing how much pollution can legally be dumped in the water will be set by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment so that the quality of the water will stay at the level needed for that use.

Federal reservoirs are an important source of water supply in Kansas, providing water in some manner to roughly two-thirds of Kansas' citizens. Construction of 24 reservoirs by the federal government spanned from to with Kanopolis Lake, the first, to Hillsdale Lake, the last to be completed.

The primary objectives of this study were: 1. to determine the summer species composition of the C1adocera, Copepoda, and Rotifera; 2. to characterize and compare summer community structure of zoop1ankters using species diversity indices; and 3. The Kansas River Basin includes 18 federal reservoirs, 12 of which reside in the State of Kansas, which regulate 85% of the drainage area in the basin, providing critical water supply, flood damage risk reduction, and vital river flow support to downstream regions.

The Kansas River was designated as a National Water Trail on J Known locally as the Kaw, the Kansas River begins at the confluence of the Republican and Smoky Hill Rivers near Junction City and flows miles to Kansas City where it joins the Missouri River.

KANSAS CITY, Mo.— Releases from Milford, Tuttle Creek and Perry reservoirs in the Kansas River Basin have been providing supplemental Navigation Support to the Missouri River since July 8 and will continue to do so through approximately August 7.

In order to provide this support, these three reservoirs will each release enough water to leave them 3 feet below their normal pool elevation. Sediment Quality and Comparison to Historical Water Quality, Little Arkansas River Basin, South-Central Kansas, The spatial and temporal variability in streambed-sediment quality and its relation to historical water quality was assessed to provide guidance for the development of total maximum daily loads and the implementation of best-management practices in the Little Arkansas River Basin.

A watershed is an area of land that drains water toward a downhill point. The point can be a stream segment, river, a lake or pond, or the lowest place within the watershed where rain always collects. Since the movement of water is directed by gravity, a watershed will be separated from other watersheds by land with higher points of elevation.
